How to place an order
This is the electronic home of Le Valet d'Coeur, Montreal's largest gaming and oddities store. We have been opened for twenty years, providing the latest games, as well as many hard-to-find gems to the gaming community. We also have an extensive selection of games in French language editions and European imports. Our website opened in December 1996 and even though our virtual store is always accessible, e-mails are only answered Monday to Friday, 11:30 to 18:00 EST. If you need service outside these hours, feel free to call us during the 'real' store opening hours. (see :Opening Hours and telephone numbers)

wWe hope to offer you a more than a mere price list while trying to keep our pages light so that navigation is fairly fast. As we receive new items, we will be including the manufacturer's description along with an image of the cover of the item. Simply click on the item's name. Do note that not all of the items have a descriptive page. These pages are constructed as new items arrive - the eventual goal being to provide a description of every game or game supplement in existence.
Feel free to contact us if you can not find what you are looking for in our pages: these will remain forever incomplete as boxes upon boxes arrive daily in our store. If you are a game creator or publisher, kindly send us a list and a brief description of your products so we can keep our product listings as up-to-date as feasibly possible.
We hope you enjoy our selection of games. While we're proud of our web store it is only the next best thing to visiting our brick and mortar store, so don't forget to visit us the next time you are in Montreal!

This is the main course. All items can be found under Catalogue: If you know the
name of the company that makes the game you are looking for, go under: Companies
and Prices. Otherwise if you are looking for a type of game, you can browse the
description area, though we have not included descriptions for all our games.

This is a very simple search engine, it will not take accents and tends to give
too many useless pages. We hope to bring you a more efficient one soon. . If it
gets you confused, just e-mail directly to us: email@example.com
